Vogele VF 500 front-mounted screed is designed for use on the 8-foot Vision 5100-2 and 5103-2 asphalt pavers. The VF 500 vibrates across the full paving width, up to 15 feet 6 inches. With bolt-on extensions fitted, it builds up to a maximum width of 21 feet 6 inches. Extensions can be bolted onto the front of the screed, permitting screed extension and retraction without trapping material. Short end-gates minimize required hand work. ErgoPlus operating system controls the screed via two fixed consoles on the main screed and two remote control units. An advanced electric screed heating system ensures uniform heat distribution all over the screed plates. A three-phase generator is installed for constant and uniform heating of all compacting and smoothing elements. The screed operator can select Manual Mode or Automatic Mode for conveyors and augers, as well as the Reversing Auger Rotation function.
